June 1, 2024 – News and Events – Miltonvale Park & Milton Community Hall

June is ParticipACTION Month in Miltonvale Park where we try (again!) to win the Community Challenge in PEI. The municipality will be organizing a number of events and activities to get people to be active.  There will be an email from summer students Hazel and Natalie early next week with more details to let folks know how to get involved, and share their activity on social media (which does help us in the contest, as this year ParticipACTION is tracking social media). I think the top provincial prize is $15,000! Please start being active now, and tracking your steps as we will be again hosting the Walk More than the Mayor Contest and the Virtual Walk to Milton. This year we are aiming to virtually walk to Milton, Massachusetts. If you would like to be involved – please send an email to to register for these virtual events!

NEW - There will be a Come Try Line Dancing on Saturday, June 15 from 1:30-2:30 at the Milton Community Hall, with Margot Postma.  Sign up for this free class at The students are also hoping to plan an all-ages family dance party – tentatively Friday, June 7.

A Learn to Play Pickleball session will be held at the park, later in June, and Leone Curtis is planning to host yoga at the Miltonvale Community Park in June.

Learn more about plans for Tuesday and Thursday home workouts, Saturday and Sunday Pet Walks, Planting in the Community Garden, and painting (or preparing to paint) the Community Hall, Disk Golf, Strolls, and a Family Sport Day are other activities to watch for this month! Please let us know if you would like to lead or help with any active events in your area. E.g. walks with a friend tend to be more fun than walking alone, plus if someone is waiting for you, there is more motivation to get out and be active!  Also, please touch base if there is an activity you would like to see organized this month!

And don’t forget that the regular exercise events are still happening -and will count towards our events! Exercise Classes with KK Pinkowski will continue next week with classes on Monday and Friday at 9 a.m. ($6).  Yoga with Leone Curtis moves to an earlier time – from the mat on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 8 a.m. followed by yoga using a chair at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday classes are $6 for Miltonvale Park residents, and $7 for others, while Friday classes are by donation, with support from the Central Region Sport and Recreation Council… and remember – the first class for Miltonvale Park residents is free!
